    I have a question. We are just about out of incadescent bulbs for our heat lamps for chicks. The new bulbs they make don't put out heat. What are people using in their heat lamps for chicks?

    I use the 250w Red and it is working great. I do need to put a dimmer on it to control the heat better now that the chicks are getting older.
